similar domain name

Hi,

1) Can I buy similar domain name like

Example: eGoogle.com ; as Google.com already exists and I am getting domain with only "e"

2) If I get similar domain then how backlinks will work with my website? Will I get advantage of real site backlinks or my backlinks will give it advantage?

Thanks

1) Yes, of course.
2) Probably not, since both domain names will ostensibly link to the same site.

There are trademarked names you may get into trouble buying.  You can check here: http://www.copyright.gov/records/cohm.html to avoid infringement of a registered trademark.

It is very likely that you would lose right of your domain name registration if:

* You have intentionally chosen a name that is similar to another domain name or trademark to create consumer confusion
* You do not carry business under that name
* Neither you nor any other individuals in your company carry a name that is same or similar
* You are planning to sell that domain name to your competitor for financial gain
* For more information on the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy - http://www.icann.org/dndr/udrp/policy.htm

See, if you do register a name it can be disputed and you could lose it - so you wouldn't want to put a lot of work into a questionable name (such as one that is intentionally trying to use the credibility of a known business or website)

about backlinks, you won't get any backlinks to your site unless the links have your exact name in them (for instance a link to google.com will not show up as a backlink to mygoogle.com)
